After discussing with a number of council Grand Knights and Program Directors, here are few reasons they say the SP-7 is important-
* A great way to remind us of all of the things we have done during the past fraternal year.
* Our way to see what else we need to do as a council.
* To ensure we have a balanced program schedule
* A meaningful tool to evangelize on the works of our council throughout our parish
There are a number of additional reasons, but what's important is this- no matter what reason you give, every council should complete, review, and submit the form. But how? For the 2014-2015 fraternal year, just a touch more than half of the 242 councils completed and submitted their SP-7. Many cite either their reluctant to admit the various events they have actually completed, or not feeling comfortable with completing the form for fear of not doing it correctly.
Below are links to pages that list things that your council can list for each of the six categories for submission on your SP-7 form.
